In Michaelmas 2024 and Hilary 2025 I shall be lecturing the 2nd year Quantum Mechanics course.

In Hilary 2021, Trinity 2022 and Hilary 2023 I lectured Astroparticle Physics in the MMathPhys. This is an advanced course and the primary source of notes are the lectures themselves. However, some incomplete typed lectures notes are here. The problem sheets are Sheet 1 and Sheet 2.

In Hilary 2019 and Hilary 2020 I lectured C6 Theoretical Physics. The course homepage was here

In Hilary 2014 - 2016 I lectured S7 Classical Mechanics. complete text of notes with diagrams available here.

The first three problem sheets for this Classical Mechanics course are here: Sheet 1 , Sheet 2 and Sheet 3 . There was a fourth sheet for the B7 course (non-examinable for S7), Sheet 4 .

A full course on supersymmetry, given to particle theory graduate students in Hilary Term 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016. These notes are reasonably complete (but they contain tex typos and I never got round to putting the Feynman diagrams in). It is a course of its time: it was written at a time when it was still reasonable to hope to discover SUSY at the LHC. Notes

The associated supersymmetry problem sheets are here: 1 2 and 3.

A short introductory course to supersymmetry, given to experimentalist PhD students in summer 2009: Notes


I am a Tutorial Fellow at New College and give tutorials for New College undergraduates (they are great and this is lots of fun!). I give tutorials for 1st year Special Relativity, Calculus, and Electromagnetism, 2nd year A3 Quantum Mechanics, and third year B2.IV Subatomic Physics.

My New College tutorials are arranged at the start of term. Tutorials are arranged by email and there is unlikely to be relevant information on this website.
